GARDEN PASTA SALAD – The Southern Lady Cooks
Garden pasta salad is a favorite with my family.
Garden Pasta Salad is a great salad but a little different since the dressing is sweet and sour. We really like this for a change from the usual pasta salad. You can use your imagination and add other veggies, too.
Garden pasta salad is wonderful with any meal anytime.
1 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions for salad pasta
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1 cup cucumber, peeled and chopped
2 or 3 large tomatoes, chopped (could use cherry tomatoes)
1/4 cup green onion, chopped (could use regular onion)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Prepare pasta according to package directions for salad. In a large salad bowl add pasta and remaining ingredients. Toss with dressing. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Makes about 8 to 10 servings and keeps several days in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
